We have recently conducted underwater and aerial condition assessments for 5 SEQWater potable reservoirs in Alexandra Hills, Narangba, and Ferntree in South East Queensland for GHD. The 5 potable water tanks were inspected over the course of three days, with strict sterilisation procedures being followed for all equipment entering the reservoirs.
As per our standard operating procedure whenever operating with potable water, all equipment was sterilised with 200ppm active chlorine and left to soak for a minimum of 30 minutes, including the ROV, all tether, ropes and tarps that were used to keep the ROV and equipment clean on the base as well as the roof of the reservoirs.
Our High Definition Seamor ROV enabled the GHD Engineers to confidently assess the underwater internal structures of the reservoir, including ladders, wall and floor joins, scours, probes, mixers, columns, and also any buildup of debris or sediment.
All of the inspections were completed on time and within budget, thanks to the organisation and planning from Rhett and Danny from GHD, as well as Russell from SEQWater. We look forward to conducting more inspections for them in the upcoming months.
ROV Innovations provides High Definition underwater footage for industries such as Marine Conservation and Research, Australian Biosecurity, Customs, Documentary and Film Makers, Oil and Gas industries, and AQIS to name a few.
